Item description for Remnants of the Fall: Revelations of Particle Secrets by William B. Rolnick...

This is a book that sings about the beauty of the fundamental laws of nature. Clear, accurate descriptions for general science readers (no equations in sight!) are punctuated with original, scintillating verses. The reader is taken on a journey through the contemporary understanding of the building blocks of nature and their interactions the current status of that age-old, intriguing quest. The central role of symmetry is explained in a manner suitable for general science readers, and its splendor is celebrated in verse. The book facilitates understanding of the background and significance of today's scientific discoveries in atomic, nuclear and particle physics. Many of the poems appear as interludes that reinforce the discussions as they amuse the reader, making this informative book a delight to read.

Reviews - What do customers think about Remnants of the Fall: Revelations of Particle Secrets?

One of its kind!  Mar 19, 2008
It is a rare book that can communicate the beauty of physics to those not proficient in the mathematics behind the subject. But this book achieves that and goes even further. The author clearly takes great joy in particle physics and imparts this onto the reader. You cannot help but have fun reading this book as you are taken on a tour of special relativity, quantum mechanics and the standard model of particle physics.

For those who enjoy this book I'd also recommend The Quantum Quark by Andrew Watson.
The poetry of elementary particles  May 1, 2004
It is not often that one can find a book dealing with a technical subject that is a pure delight to read, but the "Remnants of the Fall" is just such a book. The technical subject is elementary particle physics (which is written at a level for the non-expert). Liberally sprinkled throughout the book are poems about the subject matter being discussed - a style that is certainly unique and delightful.
A Mind Opener  Feb 21, 2004
Wow! What beauty and clarity too! Now I know the underlying ideas of particle physics and can appreciate their beauty. The delightful poetry fits so seamlessly with the explanations that I was completely charmed as I read and learned.
A Masterpiece  Feb 17, 2004
I am not a scientist. It has been over 40 years since I took my last science class; highschool Biology. I certainly avoided taking any science classes in college, because I was more than afraid of the grade I would get. I have been rewarded for opening my mind and trying to read this book, because it is both artistic in style and interesting in content. I never felt I would be able to understand a subject as difficult as Physics, and I am not pretending to have understood this entire book. I am saying I understood most of it. The author has written poetry that not only helps to explain many of the concepts, but is joyfull and fun to read. He clearly expresses his own love for the subject through his style of writing. It is a book well worth reading.
